Finding love through Facebook Dating, having adventures in the readable game Unmemory and take beautiful photos with your iPhone thanks to Halide Mark II. These are the apps of the week.
Halide Mark II
The Dutch maker of Specter, named by Apple as the best photo app for the iPhone in 2019, has created a new app: Halide Mark II. This app follows the first version of Halide (from 2017). Just like in that app, you can adjust the shutter speed, depth of field and exposure of snapshots. It is also possible to photograph in RAW format. This format stores more information about the photo so that users can edit the image in depth.
The app is sold in a subscription form for 10.99 euros per month. You can also tap Halide Mark II in one go: that will cost you 32.99 euros. People who bought the first version of Halide can use Mark II for free.

From this week you can find love via Facebook. The social network released its alternative to the popular dating app Tinder in the Netherlands. Facebook Dating tries to match you with singles based on shared interests, hobbies, groups and events.
After you create an account, you will be presented with other Facebook users who may be right for you. If they also like you, you can chat with each other and make (video) calls.
Facebook Dating basically does the same as all other dating apps, but has some unique features up its sleeve, including Secret Crush. Here you can go through your list of Instagram followers and / or Facebook friends and indicate who you secretly have a crush on. If the person likes you too, you will find out from each other and nothing will stand in the way of the blooming love.

“A readable game, a playable story.” That’s how the new literary game describes Unmemory himself. You ‘play’ the game by reading carefully and solving puzzles. In addition, open your ears well to the musical effects, because they also sometimes give away clues to the plot.
Unmemory has a strong story in which you try to track down your girlfriend’s murderer. Just like in Memento, a popular 2000 film starring Christopher Nolan, the protagonist suffers from severe amnesia. In order to still solve the mystery you have to be creative with notes, audio recordings and photos.
